Old Town Trolley Tours Washington DC: what do users think?


Natalia Mednikov: This tour was amazing! The guide was full of knowledge. Don’t miss out. A 1,5 hour tour that goes by fast. We stopped off to see some very impressive and important monuments. I cannot say enough about the beautiful and well planned tour. It was a perfect experience. All the staff who work for this company are very friendly.
Response: Natalia It's always great to hear from our guests. Thank you for sharing your review of Old Town Trolley Tours Washington DC. We hope to see you back again in the future.

Quynh Tran: Mike G. (From Boston) was the best tour guide I’ve ever had. He was very knowledgeable and knew everything. I he was like a human google of Washington DC (or history in general)! It was a little chilly but it was a great start to DC and knowing the general areas before the rest of your trip. Our guide was very accommodating and left no man behind. Highly recommend!
Response: Quynh We are thrilled to hear how much you enjoyed your day with Old Town Trolley Tours Washington DC. Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us.

Connor Roberts: An excellent tour of the most important areas of DC for a fair price. The trolley ride was comfortable and the staff at the store and the tour guide were friendly and very knowledgeable. The tour we took was about 2 hours long including a half hour break at the Lincoln Memorial. If you're in DC I highly recommend checking this out, it's definitely worth it.
Response: Connor Thank so much for taking the time to write such a nice review about Old Town Trolley Tours Washington DC and we are so pleased that you had such a good time. We look forward to having you come back and visiting us again!

Miranda Oliver: "Lucky" was our driver. She was amazing! Fitting that we had a female driver during women's history month. So knowledgable and fun. She handled other driver's rudeness with grace and integrity. It truly takes a talent to be able to drive through busy city streets, conduct an informative tour and keep everyone safe. Would do this tour again and recommend to all!
Response: Miranda Thank you for making us part of your vacation. We really appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback about Old Town Trolley Tours Washington DC and being so open with us.

M Lopez: Visiting DC and decided to take a tour to get to see all the sights without all the walking, $45 per adult for a 90 minute tour which included a 30 minute stop at the lincoln memorial, yay! Our guide was very knowledgeable and funny, I unfortunately can't remember his name 😕. Highly recommend Old Town Trolley Tours, I have used them in other cities and they never disappoint The only down side is that they discontinued the hop on hop off service in DC, hopefully they'll start it again in the future, but the 30+ stop was great.
Response: M It’s always great for our team to hear from our guests. Thank you for taking the time to provide us with a review of your experience on Old Town Trolley Tours Washington DC. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Laura Oliver: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, ValueMoonlight trolley tour is fabulous! If you are short on time in DC and want to see a lot and hear a lot about the city, this is your best bet! We booked our school tour through Abe in group sales who made everything so easy! Hollywood was our tour guide and was awesome! Definitely the highlight of our visit!
Response: Laura It is always wonderful to hear from our guests and their experiences with our tours and attractions. Thank you for sharing your thoughts aboutOld Town Trolley Tours Washington DC.

Susie Anson: Hey **Mr. History" , best driver ever. So beautiful by night. And re-learning great American history while seeing gorgeous memorial at night ... Not to be missed Fall is the best to walk around and tour. 😉
Response: Susie We appreciate your positive feedback about your experience on Old Town Trolley Tours Washington DC. We take pride in serving our customers and hope to see you again at Old Town Trolley Tours Washington DCsoon!

Slem: We ran up as a night time tour was starting. We didn't have advanced tickets because we weren't sure if we'd make it in time. They let us buy tickets and hop on a bus very quickly. Our tour guide, Honest Abe, was great. Loved his commentary and Playlist.
Response: Slem Love hearing from our guests like you! Thank you for the review of Old Town Trolley Tours Washington DC! We are glad you had a fun time.

Talina McKinley: My experience with this trolley tour was not good...I booked online, when I got to the welcome center the check in attendant was not friendly, he looked high and felt like I bothered him...it was not a hop on/hop off...I paid for Arlington Cemetery and had to find my own way there...the 90 minutes ride felt like an hour of seeing nothing, drove past everything so fast you could barely get a pic...I had to go to the White House on my own... couldn't see the Martin Luther King Monument...spent 30 minutes at Lincoln Memorial
Response: We are sorry you were disappointed in our tour. We offer a satisfaction guarantee located on the customer service page of our website.

Donna Hensley: I wish there were 5 more stars I could give Old Town Trolley! The personalized narration by knowledgeable, friendly drivers are always the rule.

USA Guided Tours: what do users think?


Aaron Renshaw: We took the nighttime DC monument tour in a covered top Sprinter van. Our guide was friendly, attentive, and very knowledgeable about the city. We were visiting in early January so it was super cold and had recently snowed so our guide kept us warm and comfortable also by strategically parking the van or moving it for us to save steps after walking the monuments. Overall, fun and memorable. I'd highly recommend this tour!
Response: Thanks for sharing your great experience! Find us on Instagram & think of us if you ever come back or go to NYC - we offer tours there too!

Rebekah Diaz: Did the night tour with Mr Map! It was great to stop at so many places and take photos. I do wish that the tour guide would have come off the bus to tell us about the different landmarks instead of staying on the bus. It was beautiful to see all the monuments lit up—different than the daytime sights. We chose the closed climate controlled instead of open top because it was rather cold at night (in late April!)! Would recommend.

Vanessa Losey: Thanks for making my dad bday that much more memorable! My dad a senior citizen and the pace was perfect for him, including all the bathroom breaks and patience. Thank you Terry for a tour to remember and for signing to my dad happy birthday!!! Memories to last a lifetime. His service dog loved it too!!!

Teresa Simmons: We took the DC tour on Sunday. Nick was our guide. The tour was a great way to see the sights and learn interesting facts. Nick loves his job and it shows! He was funny and informative! Highly recommend Nick and the 6 hour DC day tour. We had and amazing time!!

Suzanne: We took the dusk to dark, open top bus tour, and it was well worth it! The small group allowed for a much more personalized experience. It was obvious to us that our guide, Nick, truly enjoys his job, and that adds to the experience. He was friendly, knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor, all of which added up to a very comfortable, enjoyable tour! He made it feel like we had a long time friend showing us the many sites. Definitely recommend this tour!
Response: Thanks for traveling with us Share you memories with us on Instagram @usaguidedtours!

Bianca Moskaitis: Nick the @tourgod was one of the most amazing tour guides I’ve ever experienced! His knowledge and charisma made us feel so comfortable. He kept us laughing and on time! He was just a delightful and I’m so glad we got to experience him today! The Mercedes’ sprinter is a beautiful site to see while traveling down Constitution ave and Pennsylvania ave. Such a luxurious site to see🎉🎊 I’m so excited to take another tour with them in the spring! Here are come Loudoun VA wine country 🍷

Tricia Barr: We had a fabulous experience with Alicia as our tour guide and Thomas as our driver. We enjoyed a very informative 6-hour tour with Potomac River cruise. The best compliment was given by my ten year old daughter who is often reluctant to join historical and sight-seeing tours and would far prefer a spring break at a theme park. She said, “I learned so much about my country and I loved learning about all of the hidden meanings of the monuments.” As a parent, I was so happy that she loved the symbolism and significance of all that DC had to offer! Thank you to Alicia for your positive energy and sharing your extensive knowledge of our Nation’s capital!

Shari S: Nick and our driver were awesome. Very knowledgeable. Highly recommend. I took borh the day and the night tour with this company. I highly recommend using this tour company. Parking can be a little difficult and further away then the tour can get you. I am so glad I signed up for these tours. I will make sure to let everyone I know going to any city they service to use them.
Response: We're so glad you had a great time! Share your photos with us on instagram!

Joseph McIntyre: Originally scheduled the daytime tour with the riverboat cruise. Had to change due to flight delays and a mix up with rental cars. They were very accommodating and allowed us to switch the tour last minute to the night tour. Our tour guide, Nick was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Thanks so much for the memories!
Response: Thanks for the positive feedback. We understand that the basis of travel is to embrace the unexpected. Because of this, we are always willing to reschedule. Also, if you are worried that your trip has too many variables, we offer trip insurance to cancel up to the minute before the tour for a full refund (minus the insurance cost).

Lisa Hayes: Great tour that I would highly recommend. Curtis was our driver and nick was our tour guide. Very knowledgeable and had plenty of time at all the stops. They had just taken down the fences at the capitol so we were able to go on the lawn. We did the night tour and they picked us up at our hotel which was perfect since I had just had some foot surgery and walking was difficult. Would recommend this tour to everyone and Great price.

Signature Tours Of DC: what do users think?


Lissa H: Tyrone and Hunter were great tour guides, very friendly and helpful. Tyrone was knowledgeable and interjected a lot of humor into the tour. We had plenty of time to get off the bus and take pictures of the different memorial sights. The water that was available when we got back on the bus was very welcome. I highly recommend taking this trip, it was enjoyable and we learned a lot. Very much worth the cost.

Debbie DelValle: First night in DC, decided to try a monuments tour under the stars. Signature Tours offered hotel pick up and drop off which was an added bonus. Thanks to the very knowledgeable and personable Sally and our excellent driver Chris, the 3 hour tour was time very well spent. I would highly recommend this tour.

Andrew Harmon (Werd69): This tour was on point. We met the bus at 800 Pennsylvania Ave NW no problem. We were loaded on a big tour bus. Our tour guide name was Charles. He was fantastic. He knew so much, I thought he was a retired teacher. We got to see quite a few monuments. When they say 3 hours they mean 3 hours. We got our monies worth and then some. Definitely do this tour if possible.

CATHERINE RALEIGH: All I have to say is we had the BEST tour guide. He was so knowledgeable and super friendly, his name was Tyrone and I will admit he was kind of handsome too☺️ loved the sights and took a MILLION pictures. We went for the night tour- we couldn't see Arlington Cemetery because it was quite dark and raining but we still circled around and went to the Iwo Jima monument and that was neat to see especially after all the lights were on.

Emily Ferguson: We did the DC Under the Stars and it was incredible. Sally, our guide, was funny and engaging, and included such interesting info about DC and had a clear speaking voice. Chris, our driver, was also great. Would highly recommend this tour-and during the Spring, everything is simply stunning! Perfect combination of photo ops, history, humor, as well as moments to reflect and remember some of our nation’s most sobering events. The only downside to the tour was that the man loading us onto the bus was terribly rude and gruff for some reason. Also, there is no hotel pickup so plan to get transportation to the National Archives and make sure to arrive early.

Melissa Coulter: Absolutely the BEST DC tour! Fun and so knowledgeable! The kind of tour that you always hope you book! I highly recommend MR.MAP!

Melanie Williamson: My grandson and I had a wonderful tour of DC from Signature Tours. The guide, Dave, pointed out almost every downtown building, history and fun facts. Arriving at the momuments via the bus was perfect! Chris, the driver, safely took us from one location to another. Our 6-hour tour allowed us to see and experience much more than we could have if we had walked.

jen zappulla: I did the all day tour and Vernon and Chris were amazing! Vernon was so knowledgeable about the monuments and had side stories that added to the richness of what we were seeing. Chris maneuvered that bus like a boss, finding alternate routes due to closures and construction. I would highly recommend!!

Michael Olson: Driver and tour guide Tyrone were awesome! Docked a few stars because company is advertising a service on TripAdvisor that they aren’t providing, pick-up at hotel. We confirmed that our hotel was included on the list on the website so that was correct. The ticket we printed off for our tour listed hotel pickup on it. When I called to confirm this prior to the tour I was told we had to find our own way to the tour departure point. This required a change in our plan, expense, and travel that was not anticipated given what we purchased. You either are or you aren’t doing it because of Covid. This makes no sense to me as we are all sitting in a packed bus for 3 hours without mask requirement so what difference does a pickup make? Feels like an excuse to not do the work to fulfill what is advertised and paid for. The other star dock was for poorly maintained brakes on the bus. Couldn’t hear the tour guide many times because of the high pitched screeching of brakes every few minutes.

N C.: I'll start with saying that the tour itself is not that bad. DC is the same DC day or night. However, your tour guide can make any tour a good one or a dreadful one. Our tour guide was the equivalent of a lounge singer on the Love Boat, but just without the singing. He went on and on and on about pointless stuff. We didn't leave the first stop until 15 min after we should've left because he was babbling to stall for the late comers. It felt like the tour was moving in slow motion. By the 3rd stop, we got off the bus and went home. I've done A LOT of tours around the world and I have only left 2. This was one of them. Cannot recommend. 👎🏽

City Segway Tours: what do users think?


Ian Campbell: This is a MUST if you are in the DC area. The segways are super fun and a great way to explore the sights! Our tour guide Joe made this trip extra memorable, he was super knowledgeable, down to earth and fun! Learned a lot of neat things about the city and got to see all the main sights! Joe also gave some great recommendations of things to do after the tour which led to other great experiences, can't express enough how awesome this was!

Allinton Alexander: This place was absolutely amazing, the instructor we had his name was Sam. Sam was great very attentive spoke clearly waited for us and was very knowledgeable of the memorials around the National Mall. I've been on many Segway tours around the country and this one though it was not the best, mainly because I live in DC and seen The Monuments many times. It was definitely very rememberable. It kind of sucks because of the location of the Segway store it's a great location but like DC parking is tough so that's always an issue. The store was clean the lady up front was very friendly she actually gave me a pair of sun shades because I forgot mine at the house. Much appreciated. For someone who has never been on a Subway or never experience DC on a Segway, I will definitely recommend this place because it beats walking.

Karen Colclasure: Over the 150 trips I have taken, other than snowmobiling this is my favorite thing to do ! I will always always always try to find a Segway company in any town that I go to. This is the best way to tour a city. And it was absolutely fabulous we now we'll to tour our capital city this way. Thank you thank you thank you !

Anup Rao: The staffs were friendly and our guide Rob was amazing and took care of us.Safety first and we had a great segway tour around the beautiful monuments of DC.

Cindy Harper: The tour was a blast. We did the 6PM sunset tour and I have to say this was the highlight of our trip to DC. Anna was our guide and she was super knowledgeable and funny! Yes, she definitely made the tour a 5 star! We will go with City Segway Tours next time in DC or any city we visit that they are located.

Chris VanBelle: What a fun and informational tour. I would have loved to dine a larger tour and learned more. Wear comfy shoes, and be ready to go if it rains. It was an awesome tour!!

Imran Khanji: Did the segwey tour a few years ago and now the bike tour. Highly recommend bike tour with Tom. Bike tour allows you to go to more places and get off in more places because segweys have more restrictions. Also, highly recommend doing the tour at night.

J. S.: It was our first time riding on segways. Our guide was very good in teaching us how to safely ride them. She also was very fun to communicate with. Overall the tour was very informative and interesting. In three hours we were able to see a lot of historical buildings and monuments

Kyle Hayes: So much fun will do again great guide he was very knowledgeable and funny

Emily Thompson: This was an absolutely fantastic experience! Could not recommend it enough. Not only was it a great way to see a large portion of the sites, far faster than walking it all, our guide was wonderful and his commentary gave interesting context and added backstory to the sites we saw. We did the night tour and it was perfect -- cooler temperatures in the evening, sunset and later, the nightime uplighting on the memorials, was amazing! We had plenty of time at each memorial to explore and take pictures. Overall we had blast on the Segways (it was our first time riding them, but it was so easy and so fun!) We will definitely be looking to do Segway tours in other cities we visit!

Josiah Dahlstrom: These guys were awesome. Great training in the Segways and the tour was awesome. I’ve been to DC 4 different times but haven’t done a tour. This was the way to do it. Knowledgeable tour guides. Lots to see and great spots to snap pics. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND. And Erica was out tour guide. She was fabulous!

Sachin Sujir: One of the best tours I have ever been on. Thanks to the staffs and tour guide at Capital Segway tours for making my trip memorable and fun. Kind and great staffs and tour guides. They were patient during the training and the tour which made me feel comfortable and get trained faster. Special mentions to the guides are they were really friendly and polite. 10/10 for their service. I would definitely recommend!!

Tiffany Curtiss: LOVED IT! Tour guides, Alex & John, were fun and informative! They were patient in making sure All riders were comfortable on their Segway and were very attentive during the tour for any mishaps.MUST DO!

Jenica Anderson: We had such a blast on this tour! The earpieces really kept us on the Segway riding more than stopping and talking. Great pace and our tour guide was informative and funny! 10/10 would recommend. So worth it and fun.

Rebekah Diaz: Really enjoyed this tour! We went on several tours while in DC, but this one was the best! Roury and Elijah were our tour guides and they were absolutely hilarious. They provided earbuds for us to be able to hear them while they were talking and moving. We saw a lot of the monuments and traveled quite the distance to see a lot in DC. We arrived after our “arrive 30 minutes early time” because we did not see that on our confirmation. Oops. They were still accommodating to us & caught us up quick. We had already been on segways so the learning curve was easier. Great way to see DC! Thanks guys.

Sam for Short: So much fun!!!! Best way to see DC. Erica was great- very knowledgeable. They also gave us the tutorials and made us comfortable on the Segways before our departure. Best tour of DC I’ve ever been on

johanna santiago: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, ValueHad so much fun and instructors take their time to teach you how to ride. I thought it would be electric and I had to do nothing but steer and stand, lol. However, after a couple minutes you get the hang of it. Great experience, lots of fun and great opportunities for great photos! Will do each time I visit DC!

Rita Jensen: This was our 2nd group visit to Capital Segway Tour. Our guide Justin was AMAZING. We were treated like family. We were able to design the your to our needs. The unseasonably cold evening tour was nonetheless enjoyable. Thanks again Justin!

Dave Doering: We were in town for lax tournament and needed something to do with boys one afternoon when one of the parents thought of a Segway tour of the monuments downtown... it was AWESOME! From the reservation process (better than others we had called) to our tour guide Ryan, who was very patient with the antics of teenage boys (and their parents). Highly recommend and would do it again if given the opportunity.

Keyia Makel: Omg!!! Our Tour guides Roy and Justin where BEYOND AWESOME, from being very welcoming, patient during train, dedicated to safety and always there for little mistake made while riding. The tour is very informative and funny due to Roy's great sense of humor. He also made sure to converse and take every one's pic. It was truly an experience and I will bee back..SOON

Ha Ta: Britney and Toi were awesome, fun, exciting and very extremely knowledgeable! Definitely recommend it. A day filled with fun and fun facts and hiatorical stories.

Jill Willcox: We had the pleasure of meeting Bess, as our guide for DC National Mall and Memorials. It was not perfect weather, but we did not care as Bess was engaging, funny, and filled with exciting stories we would never have known if we did not take the tour. It's one thing to walk around by yourself, but you don't get all the backstories that make these tours fantastic. We went and saw the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial, the Vietnam Memorial, the WW2 Memorial, the Korean Memorial, and the Martin Luther King Memorial. We loved the tour so much that we booked another for the American History tour with Bess. Thanks so much for having such fantastic individuals teaching us more than we could have learned by ourselves in beautiful Washington, DC.

Nathan Hartman: Ask for Donna for a private tour of the National Archives and Supreme Court. She is extraordinarily informed about the history and meaning of our nation’s treasures. She was phenomenal with the kids and brought the stories to life.

dianne chiogna: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, ValueRebecca was Amazing!! She was so engaging and knowledgeable it made our tour an adventure in history. Tour of the National Archives is a must and if at all possible request Rebecca!!!!

Akiva Leyton: Could not have had a better experience in DC. Our tour guide was courteous, knowledgeable, and very friendly. Can't recommend this tour group enough!

Reuben Kats: Great experience going through the historic landmarks. I will definitely use this company in the future!

branmorris21: Best way to start our DC vacation. Kareem navigated the streets with ease. And Steve was very informative on everything we were touring. They both were easy to talk to and answered all our questions without a boring explanation. The night was clear and not too busy for the beginning of the holiday weekend. Highly recommend this small group night tour. The price is worth it. Loved it. Thanks guys.
Response: We'll let the team know how much you enjoyed it - and we agree- taking our tour at the very beginning of a visit really puts it all in perspective. Many thanks for the 5 Star review!

Stephanie Matthews: Booked the night tour for the first evening we were in Washington DC. We arrived at meeting place to be greeted by our driver as well as the tour guide. What a wonderful informative experience for my party of three. We appreciated the small group individuality. The driver Kareem as well as tour guide Andrew Evans took the time to answer all questions for my nine year one grandson. They were very cautious when driving, provided water, device charging, and gave so much info at each stop. They allowed plenty of time to explore and even took photos of guest in front of the sites. The tour lasted over 3 hours. The tour guide would walk around with each small group etc., while the driver waited close by ready for pick up. Very impressed with details provided including personal stories and his love for his job and each monument. I would highly recommend for anyone wanting a tour of DC.
Response: Andrew is a former teacher and it shows! We truly enjoyed reading your review- we'll let the team know. Safe travels!

Andyrea Mahon: Cassie and Kareem were absolutely the best guide/driver we could have asked for! So knowledgeable about all the monuments. Cassie relayed information in an exciting and engaging way. I wish she could narrate all of our time in DC! They had cold water for us throughout. Kareem even went and got more ice cold water for our group when we ran low. We learned so much and didn’t want it to end. I would 100% recommend See DC tours!

Chaz Arnold: My wife and I cannot say enough good things about this tour. First of all, the small group size provides an engaging, intimate experience that is much unlike many of the other tours we witnessed during our excursion. The driver, Kareem, was knowledgeable about the city and one of the most genuine people you will ever meet. Our guide, Kassie, was spectacular; she communicated a lot of information about the sights. On several occasions, she answered questions we had about the monuments as if she were reading our minds. Very entertaining. Seeing DC monuments lit up at night is an experience unlike any other. The travel van was comfortable and the provided water were much appreciated. Finally, we appreciated the dinner recommendation made by our guide following the tour. This experience was well worth the time and money.
Response: DC's monuments lit up at night are definitely magical. We'll let Cassie and Kareem know how much you enjoyed their Small Group Mall night tour. Many thanks for the 5 star review!

Heidi McQuade: Ron and Edrick were fantastic! There is no way we would have seen as much as we did in the little time we were here, and we are very appreciative of their knowledge. I would highly recommend See DC Today to anyone sightseeing, especially for first timers. Note: there is still quite a bit of walking and being on your feet because you leave the van at every stop.
Response: Thanks so much for your 5 Star review - we'll let the team know! We appreciate your taking the time to share your insights with our other guests especially during the busy summer season. Safe travels!

Shari N: Great tour! The small group format made for a fun, personal experience. Steve was a fun and knowledgeable tour guide and Edrick got us around town safely with a great sense of humor. I highly recommend this tour.
Response: We thank you for your 5 Star review. We'll let Steve and Edrick know. We are always tweaking our small group format for both our day and night tour. Come back and see us again soon!

J D: The hop on hop off night tour was amazing! Dustin was knowledgeable and was funny too! No way we would have seen all these sights on our own. Would highly recommend!
Response: Thanks so much for this review- We'll let Dustin know you enjoyed both his his commentary AND how he fit in all the sites in just 3 hours.

John Maty: Though the longest day of year; party of 6 totally enjoyed tour. Picked this company based on STOPs at best Monuments vs others that do driveby. Prompt pickup. Our driver Dustin had a wealth of information not only of the various Monuments but other Washingtonian tidbits.
Response: We thank you for your great review of Dustin's tour - and, we agree, the longest day of the year can be a challenge in DC heat but happy to hear that Dustin kept your group moving through the Mall monuments! We appreciate your 5 Star review and we'll let Dustin know.

Ki Anna: The Best tour out there. Larry was an awesome driver as he navigated thru DC .. and Steve was the most knowledgeable and professional tour guide ever! Will definitely do again.
Response: We'll let Larry and Steve know you enjoyed their teamwork! Thanks for the 5 Star review. Safe travels!

Nick Myers: Amazing tour for anyone who wants a personal and fun look at the monuments of DC. Our driver Steve was professional all around and got us across the city safely, and our guide, Kory, was really fun and obviously passionate about the area’s history. I was not looking for a deeply sanitized tour with guides who sound like they’re reading off of plaques at the monuments, and fortunately that’s not what I got. I recommend this bus tour for those who like to ask deeper questions about the Capitol’s history and get immediate answers, those who want something beyond the typical tourist experience, and those who want to be truly guided through DC and its intricacies rather than simply taken to photo-ops. Excellent experience all around!
Response: Nick, Thank you for taking the time to leave such an awesome review!!! Glad to hear that you not only enjoyed your tour but the whole experience. Thanks again. Safe Travels!

Big Bus Tours Washington DC: what do users think?


C.B. Ballew: Loved the Night Tour! Pick a day when the weather is in the low 70’s - it was perfect! The driver was really nice and helpful. The route the bus takes is organized so that you see a Georgetown and buildings that you need to see in the light before the sun goes down. Then you travel to the Lincoln Memorial and the Reflecting Pool as night falls. Perfect!! Take this tour - no downsides at all.
Response: C.b. Ballew, reviews like this give us motivation and help us ensure we provide high-quality care.

Ashley Beth: Fabulous tour and a really fun and informative way to see the DC area! The signage and pickup locations were clearly marked so we knew right where to go (to get on the bus and at any of the drop-off points as well). They had headphones for our family of five and the info on the narration was interesting, relevant, and entertaining. The bus departed on time and returned on time. Ms. Gale was an outstanding tour guide and she knew all the fun, quirky tidbits of information that made our night tour of the DC area extra special. Highly recommend!
Response: Thank you Ashley! So informative and helpful. We loved having your family on board with us!

Holli Allen Magill: What a fabulous experience. These friendly and very accommodating people really go out of their way to make sure you have the best experience. Frederick was so kind and helpful.. Our bus driver even dropped us right at our hotel! Thanks for a great time, definitely recommend this tour.
Response: We are so happy you enjoyed the experience. Thank you for pointing out Frederick's service to your group. He is one of the groups of stars that shine bright for us. Please come back and visit with us again!

Roger & Ashley Freese: This is one of the best experiences I have had in DC in the many years I've been visiting. Ms. Gayle was amazing and gave us plenty of time to snap good photos as well as take in the scenery. It's really amazing the amount of growth the area has seen through Georgetown and Reston as well as the additions in D.C.
Response: Roger and Ashley; Thank you for sharing these wonderful photos. It’s so lovely to see our guests thriving and sharing their experiences here! Take care!

Samantha Carp: None of our busses had AC at the bottom and I really wish they drove threw the Arlington cemetery like I thought but they just pull up & drop you off. Then they was 45mins late picking a stop up & my mother almost missed her flight because we expected to be back by our car in time to drop her off and I tried contacting the Big bus company but they said there was nothing they could do & didn't know why it was late.
Response: Hi Samantha Carp thank you for taking the time to leave us your honest feedback.

Jamie Lowe: We had a 2 day pass and evening tour. All experiences were great! Highly recommend evening tour. A beautiful glimpse of the city and all its landmarks. Staff was friendly and helpful. Gregory at Spy Museum stop was super friendly and entertaining. A shout out to Romero who remembered my grandson at every stop he saw us…both days! Romero made him feel like he had a friend in an unfamiliar place. Great experience for us!
Response: Jamie Lowe, we are so pleased you enjoyed your visit to Big Bus Tours Washington D.C.!

Jodie Martin: We have used Big Bus Tours in several cities throughout the US and have never been disappointed! DC tour was fantastic! You have to keep in mind DC can have closures for different reasons so just download the app and check to see if any events are happening and if there is a slow doen for pickup. You can literally watch the buses on the app. Some stops may be closed for sifferent reasons, again, doenload the app it will tell you. All employees are so friendly and very helpful! Gregory was very upbeat, friendly, and just a top notch nice man. We watched him stop traffic for a girl on crutches who was trying to cross the street. Night tour is a MUST!! You see several different things that aren't on the day hop on hop off. It includes a stop at the Lincoln monument and the entire city is beautiful at night. We were lucky enough to have Ms. Gale for our night tour and she was the best!!! Lots of fun and very entertaining! We will definitely be recommending to others for their visits and will continue using big bus tours!
Response: Jodie! Your pictures are fabulous! What courage to place your vision on this forum. Thanks for the encouraging feedback. Please refer us to family and friends. We appreciate your support!

Miranda: I bought the Groupon that included hop on and hop off for 48 hours and a night ride tour! Worth every penny! Easy to use. You go to one of the stops to have them print your tickets and then you can start riding. Download the app because you can see where the buses are in real time. We waited on more than 20 minutes at a stop for another bus to arrive. The bus wasn’t crowded at all. They supply headphones to listen to a recording about the monuments as the bus passes them. The night tour was awesome!! Easiest way to see the parts outside of Washington DC such as the pentagon, Georgetown, downtown Arlington. Be sure to tip your driver!! 💵
Response: Miranda: We are so grateful for your experience. We especially appreciate the detailed information you left here. It was a pleasure to read your kind review. Take care and we look forward to seeing you again.

Mack Ivy: Our tickets were purchased Monday for Thursday night tour and said "meeting time 07:45 PM" and we arrived in line before that. Gregory was talking at front of the line, but us at the back could not hear him. I had my hand up for several minutes to ask him to repeat what he was saying but he indicated that he would answer me later. Later never came, and after several busses were full at the top, Gregory finally spoke to us at the end of the line and told us to return tomorrow. We are leaving town tomorrow, so that was not an option. He told us to sit on the bottom of the bus. I can post some very disappointing photos at ground level with cars in the way or monuments on the other side of the bus and passenger heads in the way. Our bus Dionte did his best to make the most of a situation that he did not create. This was my son's only chance to see the monuments at night and I don't know how the BigBus management can make it up to us since they obviously overbooked the busses and our views were blocked throughout the tour.
Response: Mack Ivy, we pride ourselves on providing exceptional service, so we are disappointed to hear that your visit with us was anything less than satisfactory. With the unprecedented concert and last minute security plan reveal, we were forced to close last minute. If we had known this prior to, we certainly would not have sold tickets or promoted service. We attempted to run as long as we could until local authorities shut down the roads. Thank you for the feedback.

Greg Burkett: Vida was a great tour guide on our bus. She took family photos of us and gave us tips when asked of DC food and sites.
Response: Greg!!! These photos are absolutely beautiful. You have a real gift! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your wonderful experience with your family. Vida is a true professional in our employ. We are glad to have her!!

Zohery Tours: what do users think?


Eliz V: Not really worth it. We couldn’t understand the accent of the tour guide. I think it’s better to go by ourselves and find the hidden gems of DC. It was too pricey for the trip.

Karl Kanbergs: The tour was adequate but not outstanding. They should have allowed about ten minutes more at the FDR/MLK Monuments, especially since the bus returned nearly one half hour earlier than scheduled. Also Mr. Zohery is sometimes hard to understand and he sometimes repeats himself. But, for a half day it is a good intro to DC and better than the hop on and off bus which is always crowded.

Gary Bagley: A waste of time and money! When we arrived, the big bus was full so wewent in a van with 2 other people and followed the big bus. Our river/narrator knew very little about U.S. history and government and spouted ridiculous statements such as Congress is composed of theSenate and House of Delegates, you cansee the Magna Carta in the National Rhives, Washington putJefferson in charge of Congress, FrancesPerkins served 12 years asSec.of Labor under Lincoln, etc. Aren’t D.C. tour guides vetted and licensed? It appears not with this company!

Mona: Informative tour in an air conditioned bus. We saw many places, but wish we had a little more time to explore the places we did stop at…was really touch and go type of experience but you do see a lot of buildings and the tour guy is definitely knowledgeable about DC.

David Wales: My tour was cancelled because there were not enough people for it, which I totally understand and appreciate. As I am writing this I am still awaiting a refund and it was over a month ago. Despite numerous emails and messages on Whatsapp I have not received it despite being told that it was going to be refunded. I look forward to a response and a refund ASAP.

YaYa Wilson: The Best Tour Ever... should you visit Washington, DC please schedule, very informative from a relaxed, people person type of tour guide... some could only wish to be as cool, calm, and collective in a world of today... just chill, schedule your tour and relax

Stephanie Brake: 5 stars for Paul making it the most fun I have ever had on a tour.

Sarah T: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, ValueVery informative, friendly tour guide! Dr Zohery is knowledgeable when it comes to the history of DC, the monuments, and landmarks. The tour bus was easy to find at the Hyatt hotel, clean, and comfortable. We will be touring with Dr Zohery when we come to DC again. 5 stars easily.

Stephen Day: Joe gave a good, liesurely paced drive to six destinations: the mall in front of the capital (and General Grant's monument), the Jefferson Memorial, the FDR Memorial, the MLK, Jr. Memorial, the Lincoln Memorial (which included the Korean and Vietnam Memorials), and the white house. Along the drive, he gave us some trivia and historic information and pointed out the main buildings along the route. At each stop, we had plenty of time to walk around in our own to explore the memorial. The tour started at 7:30 pm and ended around 10:30. The tour was enjoyed by the whole family (including the 12 and 14 year olds) and was a great way to get to know the layout of the main sightseeing parts of the town before the rest of our stay!

Steven Mortensen: I was looking for a stress free way to get around the Washington DC mall area without having to do a lot of walking. Zohery Tours has a very comfortable, air conditioned van. The driver was very knowledgeable regarding the areas monuments and history. The van was stopped for enough time to get out, stretch our legs, and take a few photos. It worked out perfectly for our needs.

Big Bus Tours Washington DC Visitor Center: what do users think?


Delaney Gellert: Such a cool way to explore all around DC and lets you see a lot in 1-2 hours. Getting on was somewhat confusing and you might not be with your family altogether since there are not assigned spots. The audio is okay but gives you a lot of information for when you are near tourist spots. There was only one hop off spot at the Lincoln Memorial but it is not for long so its more to stretch your legs and see the bottom of the monument. I recommend going more at night time because it nice to see the sunset on DC and was a lot cooler for when you are going in the summer time :)

Kayla Kirkpatrick: Ms. Gale was a great driver and made sure we all had a safe and enjoyable trip! My parents and I loved our trip and would definitely recommend big bus if you want a scenic route around the city!

D'Andrea Wright: GREG was so awesome! He was funny, organized and gave us lollipops. The bus ride was also fun! However, the entire right side of the bus didn't have working audio, so I missed out on all of the historical information and it was super cold.

nailah morris: Love the concept of the tour! Make sure you plan accordingly so you can see all the major sights! Also listening to the headphones are a great idea they give you a lot of information! John Dickey was such a sweet fantastic driver! Overall a great experience!

Patrick Billerman: There are several things that come to mind after using big bus tour today in Washington DC. First off the buses are designed with uncomfortable hard plastic seats. They also have plug in earbuds for you so you can listen to the commentary that has been pre-recorded. Some of the commentary is too early and some of the commentary is too late since we passed the item they were speaking about. The first go around we try to get on a bus and it was very difficult at the 10 stop of the tour route. While the busses come every 15 minutes we could not got on the first one at 11am after we waited 15 minutes for it to come, we had to stand there for another 15 minutes for the next bus. I’m just glad the weather was nice. When we finally got on a bus we had to sit In the lower seats since they have limited open air seats. These lower seats on these buses have a very bad sight lines to the monuments around Washington DC. On our last bus that we hopped on we had to sit downstairs since there were no seats upstairs in the cool air. The driver never put on air-conditioning so we were very warm and uncomfortable on the bottom level. We got off of at the next stop and walk to where we wanted to go. Don’t even get me started on that app that doesn’t work.

Ganeshan Venkatesha: Contrary to my belief, I had best experience while making a trip between Vienna Metro and New York on 18th and 21st. I travelled in Bus for the first time in 30 years in the US. First it was very well organized. It was punctual. Inspite of many road constructional delays, the bus driver tried to maintain punctuality. I was very impressed with the driver whose name I do not know. . He is tall black very well built. He was so disciplined and professional. He never indulged in talking nor did he waste time in stops. He just stopped for 12 minutes for a single short break. Never applied breaks suddenly. The drive was so smooth at consistent speed. All in all I would prefer bus ride instead of a driving in car. The only inconvenience was that I could not reserve seats even 15 days earlier. First come first served appears good but hurts those who plan early. Hope the bus reserves at least 25% of seats for advance reservation. That would be a very good thing. Ganeshan Centreville VA

Pippela Pam: We purchased the deluxe ticket + night tour which was well worth the price. The narrators all had different levels of knowledge about DC which made for interesting rides, even if we had been by the same place. All the staff from drivers to ticket sellers were awesome! For the ticket price you can get on and off for 2 days which was a great way to get around the city. We went on the boat, Madame Tussands and the night tour which was gorgeous and loved that we all were able to use the upper deck to see the sites. We highly recommend using Big Bus tours and will definitely use again when available at other cities or when we are in DC again.

Alla Kotlyarova: It can only be good if you hop on the bus at the stop number 1 and don't leave the bus. I purchased a deluxe ticket that comes with a night tour and a 2-day tour. I got to use the night tour only. I couldn't find the bus for the day tour at the designated stops. The bus didn't stop twice on those stops, even though they saw Mr. I did city sightseen bus in NYC and it was great! Lots of busses which come frequently. This big bus in DC was horrible. If I knew, I would just purchased a night tour with no stops.

Ameet Sandhu: Tour is decent though I wish there was a live tour guide not an audio recording. Also the buses are old and outdated I wish there were outlets for charging. The staff could also be more friendly.

Latoya Fletcher: We purchased the red line tours...which I thought was a good enough for my group...it started at Union station...we we're lucky to have decided to do our tour on a Sunday as we were lucky to get free parking on the street and more importantly if the town was that busy I would not want to see a week day. We hoped to start the tour as they opened .. but finding the place took us some time so we lost 2 hrs...we had to move fast through the various stop and we could not come off at most, we choose a few and we still had to run to catch the last bus. This tour offers more than you can do in one day...so choose carefully or book another day ..

Gray Line: what do users think?


curtis bergeron: What didn't we get to see... in two days on gray lines D.C. In a day and Virginia in a day tours I feel like my head is spinning! We saw more than we came for and we're so impressed! I feel like this was the most efficient way to see our nations capitol! In a busy city it helps to have a tour guide to explain all the right moves to make at every attraction! Drivers were more than informative and extremely courteous!

Wendy Mahon: I took several tours with Gray Line around D.C., and also to the Presidents homes. The tours were very good. The bus drivers were very good about explaining the history about what we were going to be seeing. Also they were good about giving us clear cut directions of what to do, and where to meet up after the tours. Customer service was really good about telling us where to wait for the buses after checking in.

Ashish Gogi: When the bus stopped at a sight seeing area, we all got off. Next thing you know 2 minutes later the bus leaves while we are still outside. Terrible service. When we were about to book their tours, we could hear one of their employees taking a high and mean tone with one of the customers over the phone. The guy on the end of the phone wanted a refund as I knew this since the employee told the customer it wasn't their fault, he missed the tour bus. To this day, I remember how the Gray line tours were the worst and unappreciated. In the end I missed practically all of the tour and never got a refund.

Veronica Hodges-Johnson: Horrible experience. No live tour guide for first part of trip. We were given earphones to plug in but the file was either way behind or way ahead due to traffic and was not adjusted. I believe that the driver did not speak much English and could not keep the audio in sync. We hopped off At a stop and had to wait a very, very long time in the cold for the bus to pick us back up. In the meantime, another tour bus had two of their buses to come during the interim for pickups of its customers. When the Grayline bus finally came they had a tour guide but only people sitting by him could hear him. The mic must not have worked. He was sitting among the guest. We could not hear him so we used the earphones to hear the virtual guide. We have put Grayline on our list as Never Use Again. The experience was awful. I hope the others who were waiting and complaining with us will share their experience.

Kelly Siler: Our family of 6 took the DC after dark tour then the following day we took the day tour. We all loved them both! Beverly and Kenny were both great helping us at the desk and Herbert B and Bob were excellent drivers. We enjoyed seeing the sights in this stress-free way.

Dave Brogan: I was surprised by the lower ratings of this tour company. I can't speak for anyone else's experiences. My experience was excellent. I booked the Gettysburg tour from DC. The tour took about 10.5 hours. The value per price of this tour is amazing. My customer service interactions were satisfactory, the bus was clean, and the tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable. Very happy!

Maggie Jean: Taking the nighttime tour of Washington dc was a wonderful experience. Our guide/driver was terrific, and staff was great.

J J: We went on the night tour with our 3 kids ages 9, 7, & 3. Advice!!!! if you go on the night tour: Pack snacks!! There are no places open to grap food and the tour was much longer than the 3 hours the website says. Also dress warm!!!!!!! Really warm, we were on a double decker bus with an open top, We had NO idea we would be on an open top bus for a night tour! & we were given no warning. It gets cold even on a 78* day come night time, on top of a bus wind blowing, it gets cold and there are not enough seats in the bottom part for people to move to if they are too cold. 2 jackets, gloves, pants, hat, face masks, and blankets would have made our tour 100% better. They picked up us from the cherry hill RV park where we were staying and brought us back at the end of the tour. That was nice. All the stops were great! enough time to take pictures and get back on, also the night tours are way less crowded, we were able to get close and see everything, the people next to us said they did the day tour and just waited in line and never got to see up close because there was too many people. So that was great. We had a good bus driver and other than being freezing cold it was fun! My husband and kid went up top and my other 2 kids and myself sat in the bottom of the bus so we could switch as the kids got too cold and we were able to keep our bottom seats saved that way.

Anne-Marie Katz: I booked two buses for a wedding in May 2013. Going from the hotel to the church I knew that one bus would be sufficient but later we would need two buses to get guests from the church to the hotel. Two buses arrived at the hotel one to take groomsmen and other for guests. Arriving at the church the drivers decided that there was not a need for two buses for the return so one driver left. We had stranded guests at the church. The frist person I contacted at Gray Line said she knew the reason one bus left but could not tell me. When I spoke with the operations they said one bus (still driveable) broke down and left to get it fixed and thought it would be back in time 20 minutes later for pick up. The garage to get it fix was miles. Refused full refund.

Michael Mladenka: I bought the 2 day grand tour for my family of 4 visiting Washington DC. The very first level me in the description of the itinerary was “Guided Capitol Tour”. With this being the case I didn’t bother to contact my Representative or Senator to sign up for one. It wasn’t until the end of my tour when I inquired why we hadn’t done this that I was informed that this had been removed from the trip, no explanation was given. The lady behind the desk was very apologetic and told us that this has been a mistake on the website for some time and it hasn’t been corrected yet. It must have been going on for a long time because the printed itinerary that was at the desk didn’t have it on there at all. Very disappointing, caused my family to miss out on one of the most important sites in DC. VERY DISAPPOINTED!! 💩💩💩

KB Tours: what do users think?


Alana Brooks: Mr. Kenny is a great tour guide. He tells you the history of the area, and weaves in the Black history of everything he shows you. We went on the tour while there was major road closures for an event, and Mr. Kenny still got us where we needed to go. This tour is unique because you go through historically Black neighborhoods that most tours don’t take you to. I definitely recommend supporting this Black owned business.

Nitza Negron: Great tour! You get picked up in a very nice Mercedes Van with AC, Kenny takes you around, gives you history and also let’s you get out at a few places to take pics like Lincoln and MLK Memorial. We ended the tour with tickets to the African American Museum which was amazing!

Darlene Jefferson: Kenny is a Smart & Knowledgeable Guide of DC History. Tour Starts On Time! Yay! I've been on this tour twice & enjoy it very Much! Sites such as Franklin Douglas' home, MLK Memorial, sites around the City teaches everyone Our History in America! And the Final treat are tickets to the Beautiful African American Museum afterwards. Highly recommend this Experience!

Susan Marshall: Absolutely the best! Mr. Kenny was very professional and knowledgeable! I would do this tour again! I recommend anyone visiting DC to check out KB TOURS!

Nancy Nyberg: What a blast! Wanted to see the National Museum of African American History and Culture and no tickets for our time in DC. KB tours offers a wonderful tour of DC, by coach, that starts at the Naval Museum and ends at the AA History Museum. Also includes stops at the Lincoln Memorial, MLK memorial, Fredrick Douglass’ house (“...has done an amazing job...”), Civil War memorial. Kenny, the owner and guide, is very knowledgeable, funny and insightful. A life-long resident of DC, he knows and loves his city and his country. Definitely recommend seeing DC Kenny’s way.

Monica Williams: KB Tours is the best. They are passionate about the history of Washington, D.C. and know hidden facts about the monuments that you will not know visiting on your own. Jamal was our tour guide and he provided excellent service. Mr. Kenny Burns thank you!

Verlean Martin: This tour was absolutely wonderful. Jamal was SO knowledgeable. We were provided with so much history....not just African American History, but he explained our significance in American History hitting on the smallest of details. This tour was well worth the money and it was a Blessing to have Jamal as our guide. Take advantage of this opportunity when you're here.

DA Howard: I highly recommend this this tour. We took the day tour which culminated with convenient entry to the Smithsonian African American Museum. Eat first and bring a snack to eat along on the tour bus ( cold bottled water is provided on the tour) because you need every minute to enjoy the museum. The tour was on a comfortable, air-conditioned mini bus. Kenny was very knowledgeable and we learned new things the entire time. We stopped at the Capitol, Lincoln memorial, Mlk memorial, Frederick Douglass house, African American Civil War memorial, and White House photo stop. Soon the Mary McCleod Bethune House will be added when it reopens (instead of the white house)- we're sorry we missed that treat. There will be a fair amount of walking at each stop and in the museum - bring comfortable shoes

Jandie's Channel: My family hired KBTours for our family reunion. I have lived in the Washington D.C. area for 15 years but KBTours showed us and taught us about some many historical locations that I had never even heard of and certainly had never been to. Kenny has an encyclopedia in his head when it comes to Washington D.C. and the rich history that is here. When I had to add a lot more family members to my tour with short notice, Kenny graciously and very quickly procured an addition tour bus for us at a very reasonable price. A lot of my family said that the tour was one of the best parts of our family reunion that year. I would not hesitate to hire KBTours again. All of the drivers and tour guides were excellent!!

Eve Byford-Peterson: The Carson, Lewis Rousseau Family reunion utilized KB Tours on June 22nd and were extremely pleased with our tour. Ms. Sandra, our tour guide, was the greatest and so knowledgeable. We found the whole trip to be an uplifting, educational and enjoyable experience. Recommend it highly.

Manuel Girisch: Great evening/night tour. See the Pentagon, the Iwo Jima Memorial, White House, Capitol, Georgetown and many more. There is a 20 Minutes Stop at the Lincoln Memorial. 44 Dollar per person for a 2 hours ride with headphone kommentary.

D'LiteFull Harmon: This was great for us! If you have time I recommend the two day pass, that way you can do the entire tour without getting off the bus, then use the remainder of day one and all of day two visiting individual stops.

Robert Birmele: We unfortunately got off the bus at stop #8 . Went to the national galleryWrnt back to the bus stop and had to wait for over an hour for the bus. There was no way to contact them other then chat, a sad jokeIf want to stay on the bus then it's not bad. Don't hop off

Phil Baker: Horrible service. Find another company.

DC by Foot: what do users think?


Megan Leinbach: Andy gave the best tour of the Washington National Cathedral I’ve ever experience! As a DC local who has taken the free tour provided by cathedral docents multiple times, today’s DC By Foot tour with Andy blew me away. His passion for history and specifically this site was contagious and I truly enjoyed every moment. He encourages questions and can adjust the information he shares to align with the guests’ specific interests and level of background knowledge. As a someone who visits the beautiful grounds here at least once a year for personal enjoyment and brings out of town visitors for a cathedral tour every few years, I will from now on only want to tour with Andy. We were having such a great time that Andy generously extended the tour for an additional hour! Suggestion: Wear comfortable shoes and bring cash to tip at the conclusion of the tour (though he said he has Venmo as well). If there was an option for ten stars, that’s what I'd give the tour I enjoyed today!

Sindys Tavarez: My boyfriend and I took two tours in DC, and Colin’s one (Georgetown) was our favorite. He was very knowledgeable and knew his stuff. It was a mix of architecture and history which was perfect for us, because I’m into architecture/arts and my boyfriend is into history/politics. We loved it.

Jamie McDonald: We love the concept of DC by Foot (pay what you experience) and previously did New Orleans by Foot a few years ago, also loved the experience. This trip we booked four tours, and they did not disappoint. Moonlight and Memorials Tour - Let's start with it was cold, unseasonably cold for DC during the end of March. Taking a walking tour while it's raining/sleeting doesn't sound fun, but it was!! The tours are always about filling your mind with history, lots of history and really getting you engaged with understanding the background and current information about the topic...on this tour, it was the memorials and the DC Mall. We visited the Lockkeepers stone house (don't recognized that one, you will!) Washington Monument, WWII, MLK, Korea, Vietnam and Lincoln Memorials. You will have plenty of time at each memorial for pictures and reading. We learned so much and our tour guide really made the best of the weather situation, laughing and keeping us moving! Our kids at the end were able to repeat so much history about how the city of Washington DC started, who the city builder was, who our Founding Fathers are and had a new appreciation for our veterans from the war memorials. Lincoln Assassination Tour - This one is really fun. If you love a good story, hearing the history, stopping at the sites where history happened...this one is for you. The tour is about telling the story of the days leading up to Lincoln's assassination and taking you back to the year of 1865. You could almost hear the horses on the old streets, smell the cigar smoke and feel the chaos after the fatal shot was fired. It was a glorious trip back in time. Arlington National Cemetery - I wouldn't miss this one. The tour is walking and the cemetery has a lot of stairs and is hilly, be prepared with good walking shoes. This was another fantastic history of information tour. You learn about the cemetery, headstones, stop at General Robert E. Lee's house for a good amount of time, visit JFK's eternal flame, Ruth Bader Ginsburg's grave, watch the Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Solider. You have plenty of time for pictures and questions along the way. The grounds are beautiful and a place every American needs to visit. Washington National Cathedral Tour - This was a treat. We did a private tour with Andy, who is absolutely enthralled with the history and beauty of the cathedral. I was a little worried about our four kids not enjoying the cathedral tour as much, but when Andy met our kids his eyes lit up with excitement to show and teach them. No question will go unanswered and the more questions the happier Andy gets! Make sure to ask about gargoyles, (as my daughter did) and you won't be disappointed as there is a special one that kids will love to see. Plan to spend extra time after the tour at the Cathedral, you'll want to explore more by taking the elevator to the top level for pictures and walk around the grounds. The Cathedral tour was our family favorite and all the rest came in a very close second. This will not be the last of our Tours by Foot, we are planning to keep doing more in future cities we visit.

John David Suayan: Immensely enjoyed the two-hour walking tour of the National Mall I went on last week. Rebecca did a superb job with explaining the backstories of the sites we visited. She told us several things that we didn't learn in school. For example, did you know that war memorials are dedicated on Memorial Day? Or that the Washington Monument is held up not by a sturdy foundation but gravity? Or that the names on the Vietnam Memorial aren't in ABC order? I learned those facts on the tour. Rebecca was really cool for letting us explore the sites and take pictures of them for 10 minutes or so. I felt like this tour made my first time to the nation's capital complete. So, if you're looking to have someone guide you on the National Mall, get with these guys. And if you're assigned to Rebecca, prepare to be amazed.

Joseph Neidenbach: My wife and I took the Georgetown by Foot Tour led by Rebecca. Rebecca did a great job. She was knowledgeable, energetic, friendly and a great representative of our nations capital. I highly recommend this tour. The two hour walk was comfortable. We will take one of these tours the next time we are in DC.

David Matsu: When my wife and I visit new cities we like to take the local "Free Walking Tours." We took the National Mall/Tidal Basin tour with Rebecca and were not disappointed. She took us on a three hour walk, in the rain, and told us all about the history of the monuments. She was well informed, able to answers all questions and taught us a lot. I encourage travelers to take advantage and support the "free tours" especially with a guide like Rebecca.

Lani Slonim: This tour is well planned and well timed and was given by a guide who was personable and knew her history. Ingeborg had fun antidotes and stories that enhanced the understanding of the area in an enjoyable way. Thank you for your efforts!

Jenay Rouimi: We did two great Name Your Price Tours while in Washington - 2 adults and (1) 9 year old. We started with the Arlington Cemetery Tour with Colin and it was excellent. This tour does involve a lot of walking but I highly recommend it. While Arlington does have the trams, I think this tour provides a much more up close (and far less crowded) viewing. Colin was extremely knowledgeable, and he kept us all entertained and informed. We also did the Name Your Price Tour of the Monuments by Moonlight with Emilia. It was an unseasonably cold March night, but it turned out to be a wonderful experience. The monuments were far less crowded then we expected, and the night time view is spectacular and far different from day time. I highly recommend experiencing both ways. Emilia had so much interesting information on the monuments that I have never heard before and I feel much more well rounded and “in the know”.

Elaine Limanek: My friend and I went to the Ghosts of Georgetown tour and we have nothing but good things to say! Our tour guide, Melissa, was charismatic and led us on a thrilling adventure through the streets of Georgetown, where we learned about the history and haunts of the most charming corner of DC. We truly loved every minute and will certainly be back again!

Lydia Castillo: My boyfriend and I took the Ghosts of Georgetown tour with Emilia. Literally stop looking for a tour, and book it. Now. Okay, have you booked? Now you can read the rest of the review. Emilia was hilarious while also telling our group some great spooky stories. She was really informative of the area's history and made our trip so enjoyable. You get a taste of old Hollywood (The Exorcist), Colonial America, 60s Politics, and good ol' present day stories. We really enjoyed the tour and will definitely be booking another tour with DC by Foot on our next trip.

White House Visitor Center: what do users think?


Jesse Enloe: We apparently were quite fortunate to be able to get into the White House on this trip as we'd put a request in for the tour less than a month before our vacation and I'd heard you'd need to request a tour several months in advance. Security is tight, as one could imagine, so be sure to follow all the prescribed rules very carefully. The security stationed around the home are quite friendly and informative, giving the history of each room in which they're stationed to all who ask. Our timing was great, as we got to see the presidential motorcade leaving right as we showed up.

Kevin Pelley: The White House was dressed up beautifully for Christmas. Our trip was easy fun and stunning. We requested our tickets three months prior through our representative. We showed up 1 hour early to the White House Visitor Center, where we discovered that the entrance is across the street. The White House Visitor Center was a great place to start, with a 12 minute informative video, models and Miniatures of the White House, and artifacts with information about the life in the White House. We also picked up several gifts for family members at the gift shop at the White House Visitor Center. 30 minutes prior to our appointed visit time we made our way to the security entrance across the street from Pershing Park. There are three separate screening areas, but all were easy and non-intrusive. The White House itself was fully decked out for Christmas. It looked and smelled like the holidays. The tour is self-guided, but there are Secret Service agents everywhere who are very friendly and willing to provide information about the room in which they're posted. We highly recommend this tour for anyone.

Ryan Barley: Very cool place and I wish it was advertised better. Once you find it it is a great museum, full of information about the beginnings of the White house. Also it tells of the evolution the building went throw over time. Cool artifacts that show the people who interacted with America, old house hold items that were used to entertain guests and old furniture the past presidents sat on. Pretty quick museum over all in comparison to all the other museums at the National Mall.

Freeman Tao: Interesting and varied displays. Not as much content as I thought there would be. Due to our group's early entrance time, we visited the White House before walking down the the visitors center. Even the hallways in the White House have been a part of history and the entire place is a museum. It would have been nice if the we could have reversed the order. We would have had more background information before stepping into the White House.

Danny Brown: I really enjoyed the tour but the only thing that disappointed me was that the tour was not long enough. It is more or less a self-guided tour but there are a Secret Service agent in each room to answer any questions you may have. Wished we could see more but we knew that was not possible because of security concerns. We would recommend this tour.

Jeff Rutherford: Today was one of the most profoundly Inspiring days of my life! It was almost overwhelming. I was in the place where everything that is our Country has been done. The Power was Incredible. I am proud of the service I gave to my country. And today I was given the honor to walk the halls and be in the rooms that have witnessed the most important decisions made in our country. And even the world. It was humbling and exhilarating, scary and wonderful, and i was Proud! It's hard to describe what it was like. Everything was perfect, and in good working order. The people working were the absolute professionals and incredibly nice. I was able to be inside the building that has seen Elvis, Abraham Lincoln, JFK, Teddy Roosevelt, Mohammed Ali, the Queen of England, the Heads of State to almost every Nation since it was built. It has been burnt to the ground and re built but the walls have always been there. The walls have heard death and children playing. Goats have lived and dogs have played. every war except one has been played out in it. Peace has been kept and won, all for a simple idea. "For the People by the People." I saw the desk that was used to sign the Civil rights act and help organize NASA. National parks were made on it and Nixon resigned. Winston Churchill was there and the room that witnessed the death of Osama bin laden and Benghazi. Terrible and Amazing things happened in it and it made me feel...everything! I was in the White House! IT WAS SO FREAKING AWESOME

DJ H: While we didn't really plan to visit the White House Visitors Center, it was an enjoyable experience. We we're actually just looking for a rest room and we were told by the White House Park staff to go to the White House Visitor Center. This place is free to visit and has many interesting item to see that once belonged inside the White House or were once gifts to previous US Presidents from other nations. I would recommend coming here.

Axel Müller: Nice visitor center with much information about the White House (presentation boards, information boards, cinema show and so on).A gift shop is also on site where you can buy a lot of souvenirs and other things. At the entrance you have to pass a security check.

Chuck: Security folks friendly but professional. Tours are self guided. Facility is amazing... as one would expect of the home of our head of state. Amazing amount of history, but you have to bring your own resources, as the secret service agents, with one amazing exception, volunteered no information.

Carlos Aguiluz: Great place to learn about the history of the White House. Really enjoyed the amount of artifacts that this center had, not too overwhelming if you have small kids.
